The wall-mounted or bench-top CO2 display evaluates the quality of air with a combined measurement of CO2, humidity and temperature. A high concentration of carbon dioxide can develop quickly when closed rooms with deficient ventilation are filled with people. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colourless and odourless gas that exists in the earth’s atmosphere and which is dangerous in
high concentrations. The proportion of CO2 in natural ambient air is about 0.04 % or 400 ppm. When humans and animals exhale this gas, it mixes quickly with the ambient air. A high CO2 content becomes apparent in humans through rapid fatigue and loss of concentration. The negative effects become noticeable more quickly in small rooms in which there are many people (e.g. conference rooms). In order to initiate suitable countermeasures such as an increase in the supply of fresh air, it is important to measure not only parameters such as relative humidity and temperature, but also the CO2 content.
This is a great tool to allow us to not only monitor the quality of the air, but to also record it so that we can come to a solution on how to improve the indoor air quality.
High CO2 can make employees feel drowsy and therefore less productive. It is therefore important to know how the CO2 may increase during the course of the day and relate this to temperature and humidity to come to a plan to create a better environment.
Warmer conditions in the afternoon, low humidity and poor ventilation all contribute to lower performance and wellbeing, but until we know what the hidden C02 and relative humidity is we cannot react correctly.
Humidity Solutions offer the products and the experience to monitor, report, evaluate and recommend solutions to providing a great indoor air quality.
